The position of Correctional Officer is challenging and diverse in nature, requirements and rewards. While the environment can be difficult due to the supervision requirements of current offenders, it can be very rewarding when assisting the same offenders in achieving a resolution to the same supervision requirements.
horrible culture of bullying and harassment by officers
Officer (Current Employee) – Sydney NSW – 27 May 2017
when you work in min minimum security the officers are cowards who pick on the weaker inmates. put them in maximum security and they wouldn't say boo. There is no rotation of officers so if you get put in maximum security at the start then life is tough and very stressful. But if your luckily enough to be first place in Minimum security at the start then its a breeze. The inmates aren't the problem its the officers you work with.
Typical Govt organisation with restrictions due to govt responsiblities
Accounts Payable Officer (Former Employee) – CBD then Parramatta – 4 February 2015
The area worked in was very busy and had good staff. This I have found in other govt organisations. More & more work expected of staff as the ministerial cost cutting measures cause less staff to do more work. New technologies were introduced but like other govt organisations the benefits ascribed is greater than deliverable. From staff, management & expectation viewpoint good environment.
Payroll and Personnel Services Officer (Current Employee) – Goulburn, NSW – 21 September 2014
On a whole, I am happy with the role that I have at the moment, but now wish to make a change into a more Administrative role. Doing general office type work and learning a different type of role. I feel that my future lies in a less intense environment and also want the stability of being able to work consistently with my knowledge and experience in an office that will be more suited to me.
